Land claim unsettles Israeli settlers: Peace Now says 40 percent of West Bank settlements sit on private Palestinian land.

Date: November 29, 2006
Author: Joshua Mitnick
QUOTE: a report by the dovish Peace Now group stated that Palestinian private land accounts for more than one-third of the settlements, and that for Maaleh Adumim the proportion is a startling 86 percent. That's at odds with decades-old government and settler statements that only public lands were being used for building in territory captured during the Arab-Israeli war of 1967.
